Incroyable - the sights and sounds of Paris have been brought to life in the corridors of a Bury St Edmunds secondary school through a vibrant talking wall project.

In an ambitious piece of work by County Upper School, in Beeton’s Way, which has crossed the year groups in the art and languages departments, students have painted scenes of Parisian culture.

Meanwhile, their peers have recorded a range of conversations in French which could be taking place in the locations shown.

The conversations can then be heard using a QR reader and bar codes which bring the bustling scenarios to life.

The idea was conceived by Paul Janssens and Michael Snaith and has been praised by national language associations.
